In brief: DON'T UNDERTREAT

40% of TREATED ankle sprains have lingering problems.
People tend to blow it off, saying "it's only a sprain." If I remember, a world class tennis player had to withdraw from the French Open because their ankle wasn't getting better, and they get the best care in the world. See a podiatrist or foot/ankle orthopedist to make sure everything is ok.
